Stevenage v Macclesfield

Stevenage 2-2 Macclesfield

Stevenage   2 - 2   Macclesfield

Charlie Griffin grabbed a last-gasp goal to deny Macclesfield and salvage a point for Stevenage in their first game in the Football League.

Last season's Blue Square Premier champions went ahead when Griffin teed up Peter Vincenti who headed home.

Macclesfield levelled when Nat Brown nodded in from close range following good work from Matt Hamshaw and Tyrone Barnett's low shot put them 2-1 up.

But Griffin's low 89th-minute shot secured a point for the hosts.


Stevenage manager Graham Westley tells BBC Three Counties Radio:
"In the first half you saw a young side that looked a little bit in awe of the occasion. We worked very hard but we worked individually.

"We started the second half much better and got ourselves on the front foot. Then conceded the goal which was a real kick in the teeth.

"After the changes, they were struggling to hang on to the game and we deserved the equaliser."

Macclesfield boss Gary Simpson told BBC Radio Manchester: "I feel the lads have done well for large parts of the game but the beginning and the end they've put us under a lot of pressure.

"You can argue if you score two goals away from home you're hoping to get the three points, but I'm happy."

"I'm delighted for the lad (Tyrone Barneet) and pleased he's scored on his league debut and I can see him being up there."
